Unwanted Medicines
Getting rid of medicines just got easier for Hennepin County residents. Residents can drop off
unwanted medicines at drop boxes in Brooklyn Park, downtown Minneapolis and Spring Park.  

 Medicines from households, including prescription medicines, over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, supplements and pet medicines, are accepted. Proper disposal of unwanted medicines is important to prevent abuse or poisoning and protect the environment. Learn more at
